In 1997, author Pat Wynn Brown was diagnosed with malignant melanoma. She admits that losing her hair was first on her mind as she dealt with this possibly fatal disease. Now, 7 years later and cancer free, Ms Brown helps other cancer patients by performing an original, comedy show about hair. Hair Theatre takes a loving look at women’s obsession with their hair. If the show is anything like her book “Hair-a-baloo,” the cancer patients are leaving the building as healthier people. After all, laughter is great medicine.
In the book, “Hair-a-baloo” the author shares story after hilarious story of hair antics and trauma. Oddly enough I can relate to almost every one of them. Every story proves how important our hair is to each of us. Whether we want to admit to our attachment or not, hair seems to take first place in all of our plans.
Ms. Brown asks, “Have you made peace with the DNA doled out to you?” Patricia Wynn Brown tells many her own personal stories and shows that everyone has a hair story to tell. Our hair experiences are so traumatic that we will remember them and can retell the story for years to come. Fortunately, in looking back, we can laugh at the mishaps and disasters - usually.
Brown has a sense of humor that all can relate to, - uncontrived and honest fun. “Hair speaks. Sometimes it even roars.”
When you need cheered up but don’t have much time, this is the perfect book to pick up for a chuckle. Each chapter stands on its own and even a paragraph or two will make your day.
This is a terrific book for hair lovers everywhere.
